The Ring Deutscher Pfadfinderinnenverbände (RDP; German Guide Federation) is the German national Guiding organization within the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). It serves 47,523 members (as of 2003).

The RDP was founded as Ring Deutscher Pfadfinderinnenbünde in 1949 by four Guiding associations:

  • Bund Deutscher Pfadfinderinnen (BDPi, interreligious)
  • Evangelischer Mädchen-Pfadfinderbund (EMP, Protestant, not in Bavaria)
  • Bund Christlicher Pfadfinderinnen (BCP, Protestant, only in Bavaria)
  • Pfadfinderinnenschaft Sankt Georg (PSG, Roman Catholic).

It became an associate member of WAGGGS in 1950 and a full member in 1954.

Two of these, the BdP and the VCP, are also members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, via the Ring deutscher Pfadfinderverbände. Both federations work strongly together in the main fields of Scouting and Guiding.
